Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture

Our first ELI webinar of the year will be broadcast Monday, September 14th at 1:00 p.m. in McKillop 106.

Malcolm Brown, EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative director, will moderate this web seminar with Michelle Pacansky-Brock, where she’ll pull back the curtain on the classroom of the future, exploring a semester-long teaching experiment in which a class of community college art history students engaged in a technology-rich, web-enhanced, inclusive learning environment. You won’t find any lectures in this classroom: they were all made available to students through Blackboard in the form of PDFs and podcasts, giving them options for how they learned. From there, students engaged in dynamic online modules that included VoiceThread discussions, all completed outside the classroom. The course design allowed for class time to be left freely available for discussions and other active learning activities like a “Wiki Challenge” led by fearless students on a quest for extra credit.

Join us for the broadcast and a discussion afterward of how to rethink when and where to deliver your course content and what to do with classtime when you are not lecturing.
